Chris O’Dowd and Rosamund Pike star in short-run comedy series STATE OF THE UNION

State of the Union follows Tom and Louise, played by Chris O’Dowd and Rosamund Pike, who meet in a pub immediately before their weekly marital therapy session.

With each successive session we piece together how their lives were, what drew them together and what has started to pull them apart.

In State Of The Union, writer Nick Hornby explores the complexities of marriage with his inimitable honesty and humour.

State of the Union was originally produced to air as a series of ten minute episodes, however ABC has combined them into a single special for Australian audiences. The series was written by Nick Hornby and directed by Stephen Frears.
